We have to create a user in linux system dedicated for TeamSpeak 3 server running. Let's start with creating user, password and setting the file permissions right.

# useradd teamspeak3-user

Great we have created a user to our linux system. Now let's add password for our user. Note: you have to add the same password twice.

# passwd teamspeak3-user

Now we have added password to our user. Now let's change file permission of our user home directory to 755. You can do this by running the following command.

# chmod 755 /home/teamspeak3-user

The user is created and file permissions set you will need to switch to that user we just created.

# su teamspeak3-user

Now it's time to download the latest version of TeamSpeak3 server. You can grab the latest release from here: http://www.teamspeak...?page=downloads. We're going to download the latest version with wget, by running the following command. (You can replace the url with your own, since in this tutorial we're using 64-bit version.)

# wget http://ftp.4players.de/pub/hosted/ts3/releases/ - See more at: http://brioteam.com/how-install-teamspeak-3-server-linux#sthash.4SDbIT0b.dpuf

Once we've downloaded the package, we have to unpack it with this command.

# tar -zxvf teamspeak3-server_linux-amd64- - See more at: http://brioteam.com/how-install-teamspeak-3-server-linux#sthash.4SDbIT0b.dpuf

Delete the downloaded file since we have unpacked it's content, we no longer need it.

# rm teamspeak3-server_linux-amd64-

for our eyes sake, we can now change the unpackaged folder name to something simplifier, like teamspeak3-server.

# mv teamspeak3-server_linux-amd64 teamspeak3-server - See more at: http://brioteam.com/how-install-teamspeak-3-server-linux#sthash.4SDbIT0b.dpuf

Let's go in our teamspeak3-server dir.

# cd teamspeak3-server

Now it's our time to create "ts3server.ini" file where you can later on configure ip address and port number to use, if needed.

# ./ts3server_minimal_runscript.sh

You will get some information including your master token key. Copy it by highlighting it and using normal copy ctrl+c. Now you need to edit the ts3server.ini file. You can download this file from the root /home/teamspeak3-user/teamspeak3-server folder on your server. For beginners, you just need to add the ip address for the voice connection. Upload the file and then start the server, with the following command.

# ./ts3server_startscript.sh start

That's it, everything should work fine now.



Note: Do not use "#" while creating server.

Hi there,


I have noticed in your tutorial that you have "# ./ts3server_minimal_runscript.sh createinifile=1". You do not need to have "createinifile=1" within that command. When copying from SSH to notepad, you only need to highlight it in SSH and perform "CTRL+V" in a text editor.


Highlighting in SSH automatically copies it to the clipboard. It is recommended to search the forums first for tutorials before writing one. ;)


Please also note that the "brioteam" URL is not always needed in most of your command quotes. I recommend posting 1 backlink to your external tutorial to prevent blackhat SEO. :)
